Salary Update
For the 2023-2024 school year, Rocky Mountain Prep has increased its salary for Fellows.

This is a full-time, benefits-eligible position with a salary of $52,000.

Who We Seek
If you are someone who is mission-driven, humble in your reflections about your practice, smart in the ways you approach data, and results-oriented, we’d love to see you apply.

During the 2022-2023 school year, RMP is driving after five big goals:
1. Kindergarten through 2nd-grade students will grow, on average, 1.25 years in math and reading. Pre-K students will grow on average one year. 
2. 50% of 3rd to 5th-grade students will read a million words.
3. 3rd-grade through 5th-grade students taking CMAS will score an average of 45 % on track for the next grade level with 10% scoring exceeding expectations. 
4. At least 90% of students who start at RMP, stay at RMP. 
5. Teacher retention will be at least 85%.

Each member of the organization plays a part in achieving these goals. School-based staff members will work towards 2 or 3 metrics that are aligned to both their individual roles AND the Big 5.  As a Teaching Fellow, you will share the same goals as your lead teacher advisor.
